-====== Curious Count ====== 
  
-The idea of breaking up the counting to a selected number into smaller groups of cards to arrive at a predetermined card is usually credited to Fred G. Taylor. See his "Curious Count" from //[[http://askalexander.org/display/12851/Pallbearers+Review+Vol+3+4/82|The Pallbearer's Review]]//, Oct. 1968, Vol. 3 No. 12, p. 210. The underlying principle however can be found in Stanley Collins' effect "Sympathetic Coincidence" in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/17860/A+conjuring+m+lange/67|A Conjuring Mélange]]//, 1947, p. 53.
